You are an HR of a company.Suppose an employee of your company comes to you and complain that he/she and his/her colleague have joined the company on the same day and in the same team.The employee claims that he is more good at work than his/her colleague,but he didn't get salary hike as his/her colleague got.How do you gonna console this guy?Pls advise

Best way here is to be as diplomatic as possible, He can be convinced by saying that its management decision and may be next time the hike can be given to you. Thats all. Best Regards, Vidisha

one more explanation can be work like you can say that person have more experience then you, if is that so in this case. but don't worry in next appraisal you will also be getting same salary or so.
you have to handle this case with full care n diplomacy.

At the time of recruiting an employee salaries are negotiated/offered based on what the employer considers fair, just, or generous. The prospective employee accepts and joins. No comparisons as facts of others are not known.

Increments are based upon the performance as judged by the functional superiors ( at least should be) within the overall limits of the organization. HR's role is simply that of a facilitator/coordinator of the process of Performance Appraisal/Increments-I mean generally.

On the basis of these assumptions, the reported dialogue is at best a grievance handling/resolving opportunity as far as HR is concerned. HR can use its good offices with the concerned superiors, not to plead the case of the aggrieved, but to point to a need to take relook at the process of the department by its bosses to ensure fairness, objectivity and transparency to establish credibility.

Personally I would like to handle the presented situation in this manner.
